Work appears to have started on dismantling the Greenwich gasholder.
A crane, machinery and workers are on site looking over the structure. An application to demolish was made back in December 2017.
The holder is one of the few remaining signs of a rich industrial legacy on the Peninsula. The gasholder suffered damage due to an IRA bomb in 1979. Repairs needed are one reason given by Historic England not to list the structure.
Calls to retain the structure within a park or incorporated into housing as seen elsewhere in London have been rejected.
In recent months a gasholder in Sydenham has been dismantled.
